The Northern Governor’s Forum (NGF) has noted that most of the Herdsmen causing crisis across the country are illegal immigrants from Mali and Senegal.
Kashim Shettima, the chairman of the Forum and governor of Borno state, revealed this after a meeting the forum had in Kaduna state yesterday January 25th.
He said that efforts are now been made to work with agencies to register Fulani herdsmen from other countries that intend to come into the country to rear their cattle.
“We also mapped out new strategies that would be used by the local Fulani herdsmen to rear their cattle without having to move across the country” he said
The Chairman emphasised the need for every Nigerian to see security as his or her business, pointing out that the nation would remain backward if there was no peace.
